Tobacco Guidelines for Life Insurance


Your smoking history can significantly affect your rate class. Life insurance companies have specific tobacco guidelines and they will use your smoking history to determine your rate class. Tobacco Products include pipes, cigars, chewing tobacco, dip, snuff, nicotine patches and gum. Use of these products will categorize you as a smoker.

Life insurance rates will be significantly affected by your cigarette use history or your tobacco use history. If you are a smoker, affordable life insurance can still be purchased. Click here to get an instant quote.

IMPORTANT: Even if you apply as a standard or preferred risk, our companies will offer you their very best possible rates (preferred, preferred plus ) whenever possible. A preferred smoker term life insurance rate may vary even among the companies we work with.

Generally a simplified physical exam is required to obtain most types of term life policies. The physical exam can be completed at your home or other convenient location. The exam generally takes only about 15-30 minutes and is conducted by a licensed paramedical or medical doctor. The exam generally involves a blood and urine specimen, blood pressure reading, height and weight measurements, and a series of questions regarding your medical history will be asked.

If you have questions, please contact us and we will provide you with additional information.
